A pinup’s job is not complete unless she is doing something to better her community. Just as the real pinups provided support for our servicemen in various ways, it’s my personal belief that this should still hold true in our local communities today.

This year, we will be raising funds for the Pleasure Island Sea Turtle Project. This local non-profit is dedicated to the protection of all sea turtle species. Their mission is to ensure the preservation and protection of threatened and endangered sea turtles. As a contestant, you will help to raise funds for this wonderful organization, and here’s how:

A booth will be set up with 10 collection jars (one for each contestant) to collect donations at the booth. For every one dollar raised, one vote will be given to that contestant. The contestant who raises the most funds will receive extra points on her total score from the judges. No money raised will be shared with any contestant, myself, or anyone involved. Additionally, there is no limit on how many votes a person may purchase. Contestants may also purchase votes for themselves.


  • Entrants must be 18 or older to participate in Perfect Pinup Wilmington.
  • Be Involved. Once your entry is accepted and announced, it is expected that you will promote your involvement in the contest with the graphics created for the event.
  • Be present. Contestants must be available on the day of the event, for the entirety of the event. Please report to the Perfectly Pinned Up booth and check in no later than noon.
  • Appropriate attire is required. All outfits for the contest must be approved prior to the event. Once approved, you may not change your outfit or show up in something else.
  • Remember, this is a family-friendly event. Swearing, drinking, or any suggestive behavior will result in disqualification.
  • We are women who uplift each other. Any negative behavior or any bashing towards other contestants by you or your entourage will result in disqualification.
  • Smile, have fun, and remember why you are here! You were CHOSEN to be a part of this contest, and you will get all day to shine, be glamorous, meet lots of other people, and help out a wonderful organization.
